NORMAL -- The cooler weather is a breath of fresh air for locals at Fairview Aquatic Center.
Pools were packed when we had triple digit temperatures last week. Now that it's cooled off, the crowds aren't as large.
Fairview Aquatic Center in Normal stayed relatively busy today. People there said now that the heat wave is over, kids have more energy and it's a lot more pleasant outside.
Visitor Kelly Stogner said her family is happy to have a cooler day at the pool."It's wonderful. We were so excited to come and not be afraid of getting burned and being so hot and exhausted in the sun."
Fairview Aquatic Center employee Taylor Pouliot said they are prepared for maximum capacity, but she's enjoying the cooler temperatures, too. "It's nice to have a break from the hot weather but it's always nice when we have a packed facility in here, that's what we're ready for."
Temperatures are expected to stay below 100 degrees this week.
